It was the first day this year that I had to wear my very thick winter coat, this morning the temperature was -2ºC and the forecast announced snow for next week. It's still one month until Winter officially comes, but with this weather we are already in the mood.
At the Stitch 'n Bitch meetings I used to feel kind of jealous becase some of them were talking about things like purl, cable and stockinette and I didn't have the remote idea of what they were talking about. I've been crochetting for a little bit more than two years and always envied how knitted garments look. Crochet is great for small pieces, for blankets, for rugs, but let's be honest, it doesn't look wonderful for swaters or socks. I've been secretely planning for months to make a sweater or a jacket and for that I needed knitting; well, I should say that I needed to learn knitting.
